Design and Display

Just like the Z2 series, it looks identical to the Umidigi One with no major difference in design. It still looks sleek and stunning as usual, thanks to its Metallic unibody. The fingerprint scanner still sits by the side, for quick biometric access.

The vertically placed dual rear cameras at the top left corner add to the beauty of the device no doubt. With the LED flash sitting underneath, this flows with the current trend in the smartphone world. It’s also available in Twilight and Carbon Fiber colours.
